    Very cool power! I also like 6’s examples. Here is a photo of petroglyphs I took in one of the caves in Puerto Rico: The Taino Indians carved these drawings over 500 years ago
  2. Hi again!! It’s day 10 out of 30, and I am back with contest numero dos Who’s ready?! I’m ready *Spongebob voice* Ok in all seriousness, rules of this contest are the same as contest 1 with a few differences. No negative remarks, be positive and genuine. The winner(s) will be elected based on how genuine and impactful the message is to the community. Anything that feels forced or scripted will not be effective for this contest. Please submit your response with your xat regname and xat ID, as well as the xat regname and ID of the person you mention or tag in your post. You cannot tag yourself for this contest! QUESTION FOR CONTEST 2: Who do you feel should win this prize? Tag someone, explaining how he or she has made a general positive impact on you or the community. Prize: Namecolor Prize holder: @Sydno Judges: @Addict, @Angelo, @miaa Deadline: June 14th @ 11:59pm EST    Thank you Sydno for this idea! If you have any questions, please pm me on here or mail me on xat: nature (221192).   🌻🌻🌻🌻
  3. Well, this is officially the end of Contest 1! Again, I thank everyone for participating. All of these comments were very thoughtful, so it was rather difficult for us judges to choose one winner. However, we decided @Lemona wins this one! She provided us with several different ways on how to be supportive and make a positive impact, such as “doing random acts of kindness” and “treating others with respect”. The song was also a very nice touch. Please contact @Sydno to claim your prize! Congratulations Although she won, I believe everyone here are winners. You are the change we wish to see in the world. Remember, this contest is not about winning prizes, it’s about spreading positivity to yourself and the community. One contest down, two to go!! Contest 2 will be live shortly after this post.
  4. Hola!! I’d also like to thank everyone who participated in this first contest. I really enjoyed reading each and every one of these comments. In fact, I found myself looking back at the comments to use them as daily reminders and to shed some light on my dark moments. As Danns said, they filled me with positive emotions and I hope others felt the same as well. Whenever I felt down or so low to the point of giving up, I tend to ask myself these particular questions: What can I do to not feel this way? How can I remain positive and not give up? Or if I know someone who has similar thoughts as me I ask myself How can I support them? So this is where my question for this contest stemmed from. I’m sure everyone knows by now that life is not easy at all. That’s just reality. We have our good and bad days. As humans we have emotions, so we’re allowed to feel the negative side of life. We’re allowed to feel anger and sadness for the moment. IT IS PERFECTLY FINE TO NOT BE POSITIVE ALL OF THE TIME. For me life is all about balance. YIN AND YANG?! Negativity is used as part of the learning process. Thus, it’s imperative to conquer the negative thoughts at the end of the day before they consume you and you find yourself drowning in a blackhole of despair *cringes*. Overall, make sure your bounce back is special . What do I do to make this positive impact on myself? It’s situational. It could be as simple as going out for a walk/run, going to the gym, writing down my thoughts or writing inspirational quotes down on sticky notes as daily reminders (i.e. When I brush my teeth, I have a sticky note on the bathroom mirror that has a motivational quote). In other words, things that are beneficial for myself yet break the negative train of thought at the same time. But I make sure I take it all as a lesson and learn from it. If my situation is more complex or I have that feeling of drowning, at first I just sit. I take it all in. I remind myself I have to do something. I take a deep breath and I envision my goal. I drink some green tea or juice. I diffuse lavendar/chamomile essential oils as part of aromatherapy to help me focus and de-stress. I set up a plan to execute this vision. I could seek reliable resources to help me i.e friends, family, books, etc. I take it one step at a time. As for someone I want to support, I am actively listening. If it’s in person, my phone is on silent and put away. Through text, I refrain from multitasking and basically ignore any other notification. I keep my personal hardships out of the conversation, unless he or she asks me to do otherwise. I put myself in their shoes (or at least try my best to) to understand the person better. I’d give them a compliment and remind them to count their blessings. I’d also tell them things that work for me (as I discussed above) so they could try them out to see if it works for them too. We both work together to find a plan or a solution. Sometimes, all it takes is a big hug and reassurance. Life is all about the evolution. My favorite quote is from J. Cole’s song “Change”: “I sit in silence and and find whenever I meditate...My fears alleviate, my tears evaporate. My faith don't deviate, ideas don't have a date.” Sorry, this post is extremely long!!! I thank you for taking the time to read my thoughts. Tonight, I will announce the winner(s) of this contest and also post contest 2. Stay tuned my friends!
